A new series featuring Black artists of history, Music of the Unsung America, season continues its live and virtual series with a concert featuring the premieres of Joseph Jones’ Symphony for String Orchestra, Op. 47a, No. 2, and Margaret bonds’ cantata, Simon Bore The Cross, revealing and exploring the deep roots and extraordinary range of music created by descendants of Africa. Founded by Portia Dunkley, Music of the Unsung features a wide spectrum of Black artists in a series of performances and events for and from the South Florida community, including works by Joseph Jones and Dwight Banks. Working with the American Composers Forum (ACF) – as part of their ACF I connect program and support from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation – Music of the Unsung launched a call for scores to identify Jones and Banks for this opportunity.
